Five Star Great Wall Layover!
My girlfriend and I had an 8 hour layover stop in Beijing on our way home from Thailand. Rather than camping out in the airport, we decided to research what options we had for visiting the Great Wall. This tour group had some of the best ratings, and after having done the tour, it is obvious as to why!

Right after booking, I received detailed instructions how to navigate the airport and where to meet our guide! (We were actually given phone, text, email contacts for any questions we had.

Once we made it through the airport, we were greeted by our amazing guide, Michael.

Michael really made this layover trip amazing! Being that we were just in Thailand and didn’t have warm clothes for the cold weather, Michael supplied us with warm jackets to ensure that our tour was comfortable.

During the tour, he not only spoke on the history of the wall, but also about Beijing and Chinese culture, and took a TON of photos for us!

Next time I visit Beijing, have a long layover, I will DEFINITELY do this tour again.

Great time at the Great Wall!
Dec 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend and I were flying back to the US from Thailand and stumbled upon this amazing experience. I was a little hesitant at the idea of leaving the airport on an 8 hour layover, but they give you every detail of what you need to do. They even have jackets for you if you’re traveling without one. Michael was an AWESOME guide. He made the entire experience effortless and is very knowledgeable. He also knew where to take all the good pictures, we left with tons of amazing photos. I can’t say enough good things about Michael, and the Great Wall Layover tour. Definitely do it if you have a long enough layover!!

Incredible experience, well-organized, perfect flight layover
Jun 2019
Our layover to Beijing was in the middle of the night so there was not much we could do. We really wanted to see the Great Wall, and this was one of the only companies that offered a sunrise tour. The Airport Layover Tour company was quick and responsive to our inquiries and organized the perfect tour for us! We absolutely loved it. They gave us every detail we needed to get through immigration, the driver and tour guide were punctual (we got in early and they were already there!), and Tony was a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. We would highly recommend this experience. Thank you so much Tony!!

Awesome Tour for people with a Layover in Beijing
Dec 2019
My girlfriend and I booked this trip in November 2019, because we were on vacation in the Philippines with a flight from Germany via Beijing. Since the layover time was about 8 hours we googled some Great Wall Tour Operators for our time-frame and found/booked this Airport Layover Tour.

We can highly recommend this tour to other interested tourists. Our tour guide picked us up (in time), we drove about 1h30 to the Great Wall. After a small hike up to the wall, we spent about 2 hours at the Great Wall. It was an awesome experience.

Tony was very friendly and supportive, an awesome guy!

Amazing experience
Dec 2019 • Family
We were so happy that we chose to do this experience on our 8-hour layover! Everything worked out perfectly. I confirmed via WhatsApp and got thorough instructions with pictures on how to get out of the airport and meet Shane. He was a terrific guide who spoke excellent English and made our day pretty incredible. We were the only people on that section of the wall that day and it was so memorable to have it all to ourselves! Shane was great about helping us get some great pictures and watching the time and getting us back in the car because we could have stayed all day. We arrived back and the airport with plenty of time to get through security and immigration again and catch our connecting flight. I highly recommend this tour if your timing allows!

Great Wall Layover Trip
I decided to do a layover trip one day before my flight, reached out to Tony the night before, and he helped me to seamlessly arrange all the details of a visit to the Great Wall. They even provided me and my mom with winter jackets for the excursion! It went extremely smoothly, Jessica was a phenomenal guide, and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to enjoy my 12-hour layover. Highly recommended.

Great Layover Experience
Nov 2019
What a wonderful way to end our trip to China - watching the sun rise over the Great Wall. Jim was an absolutely wonderful guide - easy to understand and very knowledgeable. He picked us up at our hotel at 5am, and then was kind enough to drop us off at the airport - even walking us in and giving us directions. We highly recommend this tour!!

Incredible tour! Tony was amazing and made our trip so special!
Oct 2019
I am so happy that we booked this layover tour! Tony was an incredible tour guide! If you have a layover at the Beijing airport you should definitely take advantage of this tour opportunity! My husband and I were returning from our honeymoon in Thailand and we wanted one more adventure. This was perfect and we loved every moment! Tony shared the history of the wall and the region with us. He is an incredible photographer and knew all the best places to take photos. We have so many memories captured thanks to him. The hike to the wall wasn't very long and we felt so fortunate to have the whole trail to ourselves. I am so happy we chose the less touristy part of the wall! We had the entire place to ourselves and were able to relax, take it all in and truly enjoy the experience =) Thank you Tony!
